of communications such as it is to the united states, the extraordinary things that are being done by people behind cameras and in front of satellite dishes. is that understanding of the breadth of this thing known to the average person in port-au-prince? would he know or he or she know that the president has said the morgue is full with the scope of the disaster being readily apparent to them? >> they know the scope of the disaster because, you know, there is the word of mouth that spreads around and i stopped by a -- i mean, the streets here are littered with bodies. you can't not know how big this disaster is. i went to a grave yard today and there was no room for the bodies they were burying. they dug a hole between two grave sites which was about that wide and they placed a family of four bodies in there and covered them up. and that's people who want to bury their loved ones. there are so many bodies on the street and this is a tropical climate. i'm probably sun burned you can see. it's been hot here today. it'll be hot here again tomorrow. those bodies are now sitting outside for calculate t

of the points. there is no reason to assume it would be the first to try to purchase, say, the entire united states senate. halliburton might beat it to the punch, ibm, walmart, the venezuelan owned citgo. doi i don't know. would $1.2 billion do it over the complete senate recycle? $200 million a year? if the media trade magazines i read are correct the estimated profit for msnbc is $200 million a year. so rachel and chris matthews and i can buy the senate. i don't want a damn corporate bought senate even if i got to pick them. and i sure as hell don't know why jim demint and the national center for public policy research do. some people prefer this jar. but more people prefer this sauce. winner of the blind taste test. the sweet and savory taste of prego. it's in there. i thought i was invincible. i'm on an aspiriregimen now because i never want to feel that helplessness again.

it would be the first to try to purchase, say, the entire united states senate. halliburton might beat it to the punch, ibm, walmart, the venezuelan-owned citgo. i don't know. but the point is how much do you think it would cost for one corporation to buy the senate? would $1.2 billion do it over the complete senate recycle? $200 million a year? if the media trade magazines i read are correct, the estimated profit for msnbc is $200 million a year. so rachel and chris matthews and i can buy the senate. i don't want a damn corporate bought senate even if i got to pick them. and i sure as hell don't know why jim demint and the national center for public policy research do.
